    Ok, guess it is my turn. I am Boyd and I live in Texas. I am a big do-it-yourselfer. I built my home myself on weekends for a little over a year. I am married (to all people a NEW YORKER) I have a 23 year old son from an ealier marriage and now my wife and I have a 5 year old son and a 11 month old daughter( dam I know NOTHING about little girls, a whole new set of rules to learn) around 3 years ago (could have been 4) we had a 28'
    AGP put in (septic lines prevented from having IG) I never had a pool before and knew NOTHING about one (hence my screen name, know alot now but still not everything but still kept my screen name) About 3 years ago I found Pool Solution site by surfing the internet to try and learn what I needed to do. Best thing I could have found. Built a 2 tier deck from my house to the pool couple years back. The pool is alot more enjoyable with the deck then having to climb up and over to get in the pool.
    I am an Electrical contractor, coach baseball and football for younger kids. Play golf, Would live at a casino if there was one close enough to where I live( 3 hours drive to nearest casino) BIG Dallas Cowboy fan.

    There's nothing wrong with marrying a NYer. Especially if they are a Yankee fan. It's good to meet you Boyd.

    Actually Kent County, Essex is next door closer to Windsor. I did some work in Newmarket from time to time. Nice area!

    Hey crazycanuck,
    Was wondering what Bored meant...lol. What can I say, I am a slow Texan 8)


    I think the Cowboys will do pretty good with Romo, I think if he doesnt get the BIG HEAD he will be a good QB for a few years for Dallas.[/color]


    "There's nothing wrong with marrying a NYer. Especially if they are a Yankee fan. It's good to meet you Boyd."

    Well Roger believe it or not even before I meet her she was not a Yankee fan and she was and still is a COWBOY fan !!!!!!! And nice to meet you as well.
